Used Guns (and neat stuff :) For Sale

April 24, 2014

 

Breaking news!  Our move (don't worry - only about 10 miles south) is now scheduled for the last week in May, so time to start cutting down on inventory  :) From now to the end of May, a further 15% off our already great pricing - basically, everything is now at my cost!  Applies to guns and other material in stock only...

 

Now in stock!  45 STI Trojans and Ranger II's, Clarence has gone through and tuned one of those neat Czech 9mm revolvers - Turned out great - we're both impressed - test firing tomorrow  :)  :)

As part of our sort-of retirement plans, transfer of the ARMCO Repair/Custom work to Clarence at his new shop - Bumblbee Custom Machine -  look it up on Google  - www.bcm-guns.ca (my link didn't seem to work) - has now happened and he is up and running and continuing to put out some awfully nice work.

Sales at ARMCO will of course continue, and even grow, with lots more cool stuff arriving all the time.  We will be cooperating on warranty and other work, and there will be a lot of traffic between our two shops for the foreseeable future  :)

Armco's revised drop-in/visiting hours are working well!  Wednesday from 1:00 to 3:00, at least for now, plus Saturday 9-12 and 1-3 gives us those times to visit, and talk.  It has turned out to be a highlight of my week.  As before if you're traveling through we can make other arrangements  :)  We still take a break from answering the phone on Tuesdays and Thursdays and that has really upped productivity, too!   Thanks, guys!!  (and ladies...  :)

 

 

All Prices are in Canadian Dollars and Note!  No foreign (including US) sales - sorry!     Used Guns are all subject to a one week inspection period.  Return prepaid for full refund if not satisfied.

We will also sell your handgun or long gun for a 15% commission (or $50, whichever is higher).  We need it here for inspection before accepting for sale.   Call or email for details.

 

  Shipping and Tax extra (unless otherwise indicated) - Tax is 5 and 7% in BC, HST wherever it is in force, 5% GST elsewhere.       Shipping usually in the $20 to $50 range with  full insurance depending on where you are and the value of the gun....  Long guns in a new hard case - add $24

You may notice the line-up below changes constantly.  Sales have been brisk and a lot of guns don't even makeModel 94's it to this page.   If you have a special item you are looking for, let me know and I'll contact you as soon as something likely shows up.  Well over half of the guns I get have a home already picked out :)

Click on images to enlarge - I usually have lots more pics of the guns below, so just ask!  AND trade-ins almost always welcome

BTW, we have come across at least one Norc 1911 loose enough that on firing it was letting the slide back half the length of the case - riding over the top of the barrel hood.  A blow-back 45! It was jamming there every shot otherwise it would have kept on.  This is a case blow-out waiting to happen - maybe something to consider for those who ask "why pay more for an ARMCO-tightened and tuned Norc?"  It did ruin both the barrel and slide...
 
Restricted Handguns:  Another bunch just in  :)
 
Tra-La!  Just had my friend Chris do up my 9mm STI Spartan in Cerakote.  Love it!  Feels very smooth and everything went together great. $125 stripped, $190 complete...  Test firing tomorrow to sight in, etc.
An old style Norinco 1911A1 45 with no mention of Norinco or China on it!   Test fired only, now tightened, smoothed and tuned here and fitted with very nice Hogue grips.  Case, papers, 2 mags - one year warranty - $439 - trades?
Here is an almost-new Taurus PT1911 in 45.  This stainless 1911 has nice grips, front strap checkering, Beavertail grip safety, ambi safety, nice sights, match trigger, practically all the bells and whistles,  and two 8rd mags.  It feels good, went over it and it really needed no tuning, nice and smooth and quite tight - $679 - trades?
A brand-new tuned STI Spartan lower - set up for 9mm (can be set up for 40 or 45)  $649 complete with slide stop and magazine ..
A matching pair of brand new 45 Colt Ruger New Vaqueros in the 4 5/8" barrel length.  Polished Stainless, black checkered grips, all boxes and papers etc.  Serial numbers are one apart (not quite consecutive  :(   $1379 for the pair - $719 each - trades?  These guns still have the original grease on them so don't look as shiny in photos as they will once cleaned up...
This CZ P07 Duty in 9mm appears unfired and is Canada-legal  - 2 mags - one compact and one full-size, case - $589 Trades?
Very nice 40 Caliber SIG P226 has everything - 5 mags, case, night sights (still bright), light rail - less than 300 rounds - $889 - trades?
STI 22 conversion kit - this is one of the good ones made by Marvel Precision for STI - one mag - Test fired only - 50 rounds on it  $449 - trades?  (More mags - $39.90 each)
New GSG 1911 - 22 kits  :)  Slide, barrel, magazine, spring, everything you need to swap a 22 top end onto your STI, Kimber, even Norinco!  Virtually any 1911-based pistol.  $249 - trades?
Here is one of the desirable older Norinco 1911A1's - 45, of course - and this one was only test-fired when we got it and tightened and tuned it.  Box and two mags ...one year warranty - This one is really smooth  :)   $449 - trades?  For those (like me) who prefer the older more traditional 1911's...

 

This one is really something special!  A custom 2011 STI with a 6" Schuemann Hybrid barrel  in 400 Cor-bon caliber (basically a 45 ACP necked to 40) - red dot sight, super-nice trigger.  All top drawer pieces, this IPSC gun built by me a few years ago and just gone through again.  A very successful gun, shooting 135 grain bullets, and just not used any more -   Low round count for an IPSC gun - I'd estimate 8-10,000 tops with lead bullet loads so virtually no barrel wear.  5 SVI custom mags, 4 Safariland mag pouches, spare Red dot sight, $1890 - trades? 
Saying this is special doesn't even start to do it justice.  I have never seen an example this nice of a 1903 Pocket Model Colt 38 "Rimless Smokeless" in a museum or book.  Also known as the Model 1903 Pocket Hammer .38, much scarcer than the 6" military models, this is a 4.5", made in 1917, with a shorter grip and magazine than the more common military model.  Has been fired, but likely less than a box, and handling wear is extremely light, with a perfect bore and internals.  Ammo - .38 ACP, NOT 38 Super - is still readily available..Now $2190 - trades welcome.
Another one of my own I've been saving - a centerfire Lefaucheux that is common as a pinfire, rarely see in the centerfire version - Appears to be a Swedish military revolver in 11mm - likely an experimental one as it has no Swedish markings.  It definitely qualifies as an Antique and just needs to be de-registerd.  Actually in pretty nice condition, with a lot of original finish remaining, good chambers, some pitting in the strongly-rifled .429 bore, definitely NOT an ARMCO trigger pull.  Everything original, and works well.  It would take 44 Russian rounds if loaded (lightly) with black powder, but this is not a bear gun!  $600 no tax  :)
 
 
 Rimfire Handguns:
This is the third -nicest Herbert Schmidt 22 LR revolver I have come across  :)  Appears to have been sitting around a lot more than being shot, great lock-up and internals - $299 - trades - now ready to sell  :)
This Hi-Standard Sport King is a wonderful shooting 22 - a shorty but still not a prohib  :)  One Magazine, wonderful bore and internals, shows some use - it is a 1951 gun  :)   $289 - trades?
These older Colt Woodsman 22's are rare, collectible and handle and shoot so well.  Dates to 1953.  This one shows a little wear but certainly no abuse - $549 - Trades?
 
Prohibs:
 
Lovely S&W Model 34 22LR "Kit Gun" so named for the Americans' popular carrying of them in their fishing tackle boxes (we never could in Canada  :()  These are getting rare!  $399 - trades?
This is a rare Beretta -Model 19 in 25ACP, and it is in perfect working order!  Not a lot of finish left, but complete and functional, one original magazine, these are so much fun to shoot - $199 - trades? 

 

These Star Model SI .32ACP pistols were made between 1944 and 1983 and this one is exceptional, with original Military/Police holster and matching serial numbered magazine plus a spare (different number).  Shows very little if any use - no German markings. $349 - trades?

Here is a really nice Colt Model 1903 Pocket hammerless in 32 ACP.  Slight flaw on right grip.  Barrel and internals in wonderful condition - $311 - trades?

Here is a really lovely late fifties 12(6) S&W Model 10 with the 4" barrel and "SPM" in front of the serial number - Montreal City Police -  has been professionally refinished in my opinion, but very nicely... shows very little use as I would expect  :)  $329 - trades?  
This 12(6) Romanian-issued Beretta 1934 is in 380 (or 9 Scurt as marked on the slide). Dated 1941, it carries the "CM" marking on the frame.  Has survived very nicely - original magazine - $299 - trades?
S&W 12(6) Model 10-5 in 38 Special is a 4" (12(6) Prohib in lovely shape - custom grips - a wonderful shooter - $279 - trades?
 
 Some of my own - no tax... all these are 12(6) Prohibs...

One of my own, so no tax  :)  A nice 1950's Colt "357 Magnum" - the forerunner of the Python - basically a Python without the ribbed barrel - this one has the target sights, flared hammer and trigger -  $499 - trades?  I can vouch for the accuracy and lovely action of this one as it remained my favourite for many years, shooting only 38 Special target ammo, until I got my S&W Model 627...  I am partial to S&W's, currently owning 16...   :)

MAB Modele R - a 32acp French pistol very close to the Model D that is the common civilian version, but patterned more for military use, with an exposed hammer and lanyard ring.  Very few of these were made as the army went to 9mm,  and today it is much rarer than the D series..small crack in the right grip by the top screw, lovely bore and internals  $199 - no tax 
Two Webleys I don't shoot any more- the first one is a 3" Mark III 38 revolver (Sherlock Holmes era) that is very special. 95% finish, internals as-new, grips 95%+, top strap engraved with the Scottish importer's name and address(es).  The slightly larger one is a commercial Webley in 38S&W also, approx 1930's, and in remarkable condition.  NOT a wartime model!    Small 38-$500, Large 38 - $300,  - I'll consider trades...
This is a lovely 380 Beretta Model 1934 that I had Jim Ford restore for me a while back  because I am fascinated by 380's - and because this Beretta fits my hand so well.  Shoots great, looks good, not original, but so what? I hear Mussolini used to own this one - well, one like it  :)  $319 no tax  :)
This 7.65 (32ACP)  Colt Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless has for years been one of my favourites - that I just don't shoot any more - because it is to me the epitome of 1930's gangster-era pistols.  Slim, sleek and (considered in its day) powerful, this model was refinished very well some years ago - looks gorgeous - and shoots very well.  I just got myself a 380 version of this - so...  $300 - no tax - trades considered  :)
 
LONG GUNS: 
Sample only - this is a 10-22 (Archangel-kitted) my Cerakote guy did up in OD.  Turned out great  :)
 
This Belgian Browning 308 BLR is in fantastic shape for a 20+ year-old rifle - bore looks brand new, just lapped a bit, nice and shiny!  Steel receiver model with a 3-9 Tasco that will work just great until you can afford that Swarovski  :)  These rifles are as accurate as almost all bolt-action.  $629 - trades?
Chinese SKS-D folder with blocked steel AK magazine - 7.62x39, of course.  Very little use - this is a nice one with a pristine bore - $569 - trades?
This JP Sauer & Sohn Model 3000 Drilling is used but still in woderful shape.  16 Gauge x 16 Gauge x 7x57R with a 22 Magnum insert for one of the shotgun barrels.  Sports a quick-detachable Frankonia 6x42 scope.  Bores immaculate, superb wood of course - $3599 - trades considered.
How I wish I were right-handed!  This gorgeous rifle is a Remington 700 Custom Shop C grade 300 Ultra Mag and it's flawless inside and out!  The wood is the kind where you'd buy a blank for $3000 and then pay someone another thousand to finish it  :)  The metalwork is flawless, of course - bolt is sooo smooth and the trigger is crisp and light - not overly light - never messed with.  Drilled and tapped of course .  You'd pay over $3000 today (and wait a long while) I saw used ones not nearly as pretty at $3550 US!  - this one is $1790 - trades?
A lovely unfired Savage Model 16 in 22-250.  Accutrigger, stainless, with Leupold Vari-x II 3-9 scope - perfect wolf and coyote rifle - $890 - or $649/$349 separately - trades?
The perfect truck gun!  A camo'd H&R 308 with sling and Redfield 3-9 scope - $399 - trades ?  Lovely bore and tight lockup - actually a decent trigger!
Norinco M14 in 308 with ARMS mount and Leupold 3-9 Mark AR scope - $890 - trades?  I have all the rear sight stuff but not the flash hider/front sight, so if anyone has a flash hider for these, I'd gladly buy it and consider selling the mount and/or the scope  :)  Got one  :)  Now sold  :)
 
Now this is rare - and nice!  A Remington Model 4 Rolling Block take-down model in 25 rimfire - my very first real rifle was a Stevens Favorite in 25!  Expensive to shoot compared to the 22's, even in 1954  :)  I learned to make every shot count!  This one is the "Boy's Rifle" and would be very shootable for someone with a few boxes of ammo stashed away  :) $890 - trades?  Got some ammo, too, now - let's talk  :)
And... Neat stuff!!

An RCAF engraved Enfield No2 Mark 1* "Tanker" that is truly exceptional.  1941 manufacture, it has the nice matt blued finish, rare wooden grips, lanyard ring, original paperwork from 1955  ($19.95, those were the days - of course 50 cents an hour was common-place then), and lovely internals.  Actually has a decent trigger pull...  $399 - trades?  A wonderful addition to your Canadian Military collection.  Sold - David  :)
